The text below is reproduced from the letter by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Khoo Ee Ming. It was wrongly addressed to UKM and went to Dept. of Pathology, USM before it finally arrived in my pigeon-hole on 13 June 2005 - Faridah.

Dear Dr Faridah Hj Abd Rashid

Re: Bibliography of Primary Care Research

We are a group of primary care physicians and researchers from University of Malaya, International Medical University and the Ministry of Health conducting a research on "Evaluation of Primary Care Research". As part of the project, we need to collect as comprehensive a list as possible of all the research and publications done that is pertaining to primary care in Malaysia. As many of the articles published were not accessible electronically, researchers and doctors were not able to access the information which is essential for the progress of research in our country.

We understand that you have conducted research and published papers in Malaysia. We would really appreciate your co-operation to let us have a copy of all your full text articles for completeness of the data. We are hoping to produce a bibliography of the researches done from 1966 to date and this list will be valuable to all doctors who are going to conduct research. We appreciate your contribution to this research and will be happy to provide you a list of studies done when we have completed the project. We will also be happy to pay for the postage when you sent us your copies of papers if you provide us a receipt.

Please send your copies of papers to:

Associate Professor Dr Khoo Ee Ming

Department of Primary Care Medicine

University of Malaya

We would like to thank you for your cooperation for the advancement of primary care research.

Yours sincerely
